post #4666 of 4669
Having a a200p for my main phone (nexus 5) I already had to face the necessity of buying audio player pro, but I also own a note2, and that would be my audio carrier of choice. What I'm considering though is that, the moment I should decide to use the amp with other players, having a second USB port would help me only with apple products, but in that case I could also use the cck; besides let's say one day I want to connect a ps3 through its optical ouput, well in that case having a second USB port would be more a limitation, am I correct?

The USB B port is for computer input and now CCK input.  The other USB input on the iDevice models are strictly for iDevice input only.  The LX model ditches the iDevice port for an optical input instead.  The most common use for this, I would have to say, is the current fleet of Astell & Kern DAPs, which have optical out sharing an output with the 1/8" headphone out.  Maybe I should say the AK100 and AK120, as I'm not sure if the AK240 kept the optical out trend or not...

The iPod Classic won't work, only iOS devices are compatible with the CCK.

Thank you very much for your kind replies, I'll change my order considering that I'm more prone to eventually get an ios device than an Ipod, and I will mainly use my pc at work or my android phone
